There's a number of other subjects (non-trek) I've started and would like to finish and some newer Shapeways prints.

Here's a sampling:

I guess I should have given a rundown, starting at top left:
  • 747 with separate shuttle
    2 Gunstars
    3 Millenium Falcon's underneath (3rd one scaled wrong)
    Imperial Lambda shuttle
    Tim Corbett Polaris
    2001 PanAm Spaceplane
    Cosmostrator
    Forbidden Planet Saucer
    Space Ark
    Draconia
Bottom left:
  • 3 (Various) Galactic Cruiser
    SAAB Saratoga
    Seaquest sub
    AVP Predator Ship
    B5 White Star

There's a SeaQuest in 2500 out there?

I don't think he produces kits to a particular scale. But given that it is sized at 307m and is just a smidge longer than the Refit E, it looks right for the "Sacred Scale".

Ohhhhh! Nice! Too bad that Saratoga is too small for 2500... I'd love to have that ship in Sacred Sc

Which is that sweet rocket ship middle top?
I need that- with some mods, it'd be perfect for the Consul's ship from Hyperion!

Where's the Gunstar? Can you link me that?

Look in the square between the 2 and 3, next to the 747.

That....seems too small. The Gunstar is 20 meters long, do it should be about as long as the Millennium Falcon's circular part and it should be about the same width as the Falcon (my girl's got a big ass!).
Another way to look at it, is almost as long as a Runabout but 2.5 times as wide.

In the same topic, I think the TOS Colonial Viper from Studio Bergstrom is 1:2500th- or even 1:2256th scale.
(It's tiny!)
Maybe his Gunstar is worth getting too...

I'm ordering some Vipers and Raiders in his Fleetscale after seeing the Viper from a friend's collection.

Anyone got the old Agents of Gaming Fleetscale minis?
I once had the Starfury set and those looked right for 2500th...but brothers, that was two decades ago!

Does anyone on Shapeways make the Starfury? I'd love to make a mixed Allies fleet with SW, B5, ST, BSG, Last Starfighter.... whatever else I can manage!
They can fly escort to my capital ships and provide a sense of scale.

Also, since we're at it, did anyone ever make the USS Typhon? I'd love to get that, along with a squadron of Valkerie fighters!

Del was right -- those were the Gunstars (2 of them). I've updated the post to give a list of the models (so you won't need to guess). I'm with you and that I'd like to have a "Sacred Scale" SAAB Saratoga, but I'm not holding my breath that it will get made -- I'm assuming a possible scratchbuild sometime down the road.

Honestly, I think it just looks small because it *IS* small. I checked the dimensions with ScaleMaster, using the model length as .8cm (I'm guessing, but think that's pretty close.) and the subject size of 20 meters. Result was exactly - 1/2500.

You're 100% right on the scale- and maybe it'd look bigger with paint. In translucent, it kinda...cloaks.

On the other claw, I think I'd prefer it in 2256th to wipe out my TIE's in that scale...that would be about 10mm at a guess. Noticably larger, but still pretty damn small.
I think the (Fleetscale) Studio Bergstrom version is about that size.
